View Full Version : Waterman 55 lever box size.....

Hi all,

I'm trying to determine if the lever box on the 52 has the same dimensions as a 55. The only difference I can eye ball is the pressure bar.

Anyone else have experience with this question.....I'm working on restoring a nice #55.

Roughly 26.8mm (end to end) on a model 55 pen body. I recently bought a 55 body for the purpose of using its lever box in a very valuable desk set, which required a lever box (in nickel) of the same size.
All of my 52 1/2 pens have a box which measures within 1 tenth of a mm in length of a model 55 lever box, and they are the gold filled versions with the round Ideal Globe logo on the paddle. They would likely fit, but would have been the wrong color for my deskset.
